POSTDOCTORAL/RESEARCH ASSOCIATE POSITION – Neuroimmune Interactions at Mucosal Barriers

The Washington University School of Medicine has an exciting opportunity for a motivated, skilled and independent individual to study and pioneer the understanding of novel neuroimmune pathways that regulate a variety of sensory-reflex arcs including itch, airway hyperreactivity, and intestinal dysmotility. The federally funded project will use novel approaches targeting innate immunity to prevent various disease manifestations including, but not limited to, atopic dermatitis, asthma, and food allergy. In addition to basic in vivo mouse work, there will always be a major translational component relating to human diseases. The work will be conducted in Washington University School of Medicine’s premier Center for the Study of Itch, a state-of-the-art biomedical facility that has cutting-edge immunology, imaging, high-throughput sequencing, and behavioral capabilities. Candidates should have a PhD, MD, DVM or equivalent and have a background in cellular immunology and/or neuroscience. Experience with animal models is desirable. Washington University in St. Louis is ranked fourth in the nation in NIH funding and has a vibrant medical research community.
